Creation of favourable conditions for introducing culture
Key objectives of the measure:
With the purpose of promoting introduction of products and services (including the cultural ones), the commission for coordinating the charity programmes, operating in Armenia continued creating favourable conditions for introduction of cultural products and services for charity in 2012-2015; as a result, 22 programmes relating to the field of culture were recognised as charity. By relieving the implemented programmes from some taxes and duties, the general basket of cultural diversity products and services has been replenished. In the reporting period, the arrangement of exhibitions of works of world-renowned authors of Armenian origin in Armenia may be considered as a key policy for introducing the culture, of which the exhibitions of photographer Ara Guler, sculptors Nokoghayos Nikoghosyan, Sargis Baghdasaryan, collection of carpets of collector Mushegh Chaloyan, painters Jan Kazanchyan, Hakob Hakobyan, Eduard Isabekyan, Sedrak Arakelyan are worth mentioning. The exhibitions provide an opportunity to communicate with the activities of artists and figures of culture of Armenian origin, enjoying worldwide recognition, and their creative work heritage.
